Reviewer Comments:

Cross the river provided us a great view and a very close commute to Wisp Mountain for skiing. The hot tub/back porch has an amazing view of the stream below. Other than that, there are not many positives. As previous reviewers have noted, the furniture is HORRENDOUS. The couch in the main room is a joke. The cushions separate when you lay down and you are just lying on the frame. The beds are rocks. Also, as other reviewers have mentioned, the pictures are very deceiving in regards to the privacy. It is very close to two other homes. We visited in January, but it may be an issue in busier months. We also struggled with internet the entire time! I called 5 times and Taylor Made claimed it was fixed. The owner called the house after the 5th time and said he would fix it the next day. We went skiing and he said it was fixed and left a bottle of wine and a very nice note apologizing, but the internet was still not available. The owners are obviously very sweet but there is no/spotty internet. Please beware if you need internet for work or to be in touch with anyone. We had to drive down the road to Facetime our daughter. We had a great time in Deep Creek, but we will never stay here again. I have never negatively reviewed a property, but I feel like the reviews that I read were extremely inaccurate.

Owner's Response: Hi Paige! Thank you so much for your review! While I am glad that you were able to enjoy the views and convenient location to the Wisp I do apologize for the issues that came up during your stay. We are working with the owner on replacing the furnishings at the house. After your stay he did remodel the bathroom and it looks amazing! In regards to the internet, it looks like this is an issue with the service provider themselves and we are going to have to have them come look at it. We do greatly appreciate your business and hope that you come back and see us again soon! Best Regards, Lisa

Reviewer Comments:

It was so gorgeous we didn’t want to leave. The rental location sits on a Dead end roadway. There are neighbors on both sides next door but no one was there during our visit in the off season. It was snowing when we arrived on Christmas Eve and the snow continued throughout our stay. It was so beautiful. A snow shovel was left out front and the neighbor at the end of the road used his snow blower to clear the roadway and a path around our vehicle (much appreciated). The WiFi did not work for our cell phones or computers and I assume this was because of the weather but it didn’t bother me. I needed the R & R so it was nice to have some peace. I was disappointed in the outdated bathtub/shower. The home has been renovated but they did not update the bathtub/shower so there is some mold and rust. I did not feel comfortable taking a bath but considering we had the hot tub, showers were fine. The hot tub had been cleaned 4 days prior to our arrival and we utilized it a few times. It felt wonderful and the view was amazing. We even had a family of deer visit us in the mornings. Overall a fantastic location and cozy feel. I would visit again.

Owner's Response: Updated - 2/1/18 The owner just remodeled the bathroom - everything is brand new. Hope you come back and check it out! Hi Angela! Thank you for your review! So happy that you enjoyed your time at Cross the River. This really is the perfect setting for some R & R. I will definitely have our maintenance team check out the WIFI at the house and the housekeeping department check out the tub. We are so happy to have you stay with us and we hope you come back! Regards, Lisa

We greatly enjoyed our stay. All amenities you could reasonably ask for were on site. Less than 10 minute drive to Wisp, it has an open floor plan, large rear deck with hot tub, gas grill, fire pit, and backs up to nearby stream. Only thing we could ask for would be a little better quality couch in the living room. After a long day on the slopes, something a little more comfortable would have been a great touch.

Reviewer Comments:

Since our families were out of town, my husband and I decided to spend Thanksgiving on our own in the woods, and it was a great decision. Location is great---quiet by the creek with a beautiful view of the peak across the river. Even in the cold, the hot tub saw a lot of use. The kitchen was clean and well-stocked with cookware. Fork Run is close by for those of us who don't ski or kayak but enjoy hiking/running/climbing. Driving around the area is tricky, since you are on windy back roads, which is great for privacy but means you should try to arrive in daylight if possible. Also do not expect cell service---which was a plus for us, but maybe not for everyone. All in all an excellent experience and one we hope to make into a tradition!
